Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas to all our members, friends and visitors!

We thank you for your continued interest in the campaign and helping keep alive the memory of all those who served, whether they came home or still lie in the Balkans.

I don’t have an original festive image this year so, instead, I have chosen this colourful German postcard which is one of my favourite acquisitions during 2019. It shows German and Bulgarian soldiers shopping at the market in Skopje (Uskub).

Andy's interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Arthur, who served in Salonika as a sapper with the Royal Engineers from 1916-1918. Opinions expressed in these posts are personal and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Society.
